  • Original Radio

    Does anyone know of a car radio technician who restores old car radios in the New York City area. I live on Long Island and bought an original radio for my '59 Lark at the flea market in South Bend. I'm not an expert on old radios.

      Not many people do radio restoration. Check out Hemmings and the net. These are (unless some earlier versions were supplied from someone else) Delco radios and any place that deals in GM radios can handle these.

        Think about Am/fm CONVERSION. I did it on my original and you would never know.

          You might want to find a working radio, they are usually $50.00 or so, since the repairs at $50/hour will eat you alive.
